Newwsletter from Heritage Action—Obama’s tax hikes explained
Posted April 21, 2011on:
|(Be sure to click on the referred site for better understanding of what Obama is proposing now. Now that he is no longer in his “Ineffective President” mode and on his “Effective Presidential Campaigner” mode TWO YEARS BEFORE THE ELECTION! Are any in the Main Stream Media asking who is acting as President of the United States while Obama is absent? BB)
After President Obama released a budget that continues reckless spending and record deficits, we knew his ‘reducing the deficit’ speech would call for tax hikes. Sure enough, with the euphemism “shared responsibility” he called for Americans to paymore towards the federal government’s largess.We are absolutely opposed to tax hikes. When we dug through the speech, we realized that 60% of Obama’s “deficit reduction” came from tax hikes. Moreover, raising enough money to shrink the deficit would require taxing the middle class. This is more of the same from President Obama, and America has had enough.
We immediately launched a petition, asking Americans to remind President Obama and the rest of the Washington establishment that they weren’t elected to raise taxes.
Within two days, over 15,000 Americans signed our petition.
Statements like this help us break through the beltway noise. While pundits and the political class talk about “boosting revenue,” we are here to remind Washington that such ‘boosts’ come from the pocketbooks hard-working Americans.
Thank you for standing with us against tax hikes. Together, we can build an America where freedom, opportunity, and prosperity flourish.
